British Airways has announced a new seasonal weekend service from London Gatwick to Lyon.

The airline will fly from Gatwick to Lyon (Lyon–Saint-Exupéry airport) on Saturdays and Sundays from Saturday 15 December 2018 to Sunday 21 April 2019.

This will complement BA’s existing year round service from Heathrow to Lyon which operates up to three times daily. BA also flies from Gatwick to Grenoble three times weekly from Saturday 15 December 2018 to Sunday 31 March 2019.

It is of course possible to “mix and match” departure and arrival airports in London and France if that is convenient.

The opening of Terminal 2 at London Heathrow this year has resulted in a large number of airlines moving out of Terminals 1 and 3.

As a consequence of this, Terminal 1 is due to close in 2015 and BA will be consolidating its operations in Terminals 3 and 5.

A series of terminal moves will be taking place next year.

As part of this, from Tuesday 30 June 2015, BA’s short-haul flights to Bilbao (launching 29 March 2015), Hanover, Luxembourg, Lyon, Marseille will move from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3.

These routes will join existing BA short-haul routes from Terminal 3 which are Barcelona, Budapest, Gibraltar, Helsinki, Lisbon, Vienna and Warsaw.

Flights from London Heathrow to Rotterdam will not be moving as this route is being suspended from 28 March 2015.
